<--- Gamer 24/7
to tell u the truth I got a dual core with a 512mb video card, and all my games like call of duty 4 with full setting turn all the way up on-line play smoothly with no lag. I can run two world of warcraft accounts at the same time with no lag. I can watch a video and play videos games at the same time with no lag (Dual screens). A dual core will do the job but more power dose not hurt all depends on your wallet. I would love to have a quad core but cant afford it but my dual core dose the job and im happy with it.
